. i would like to pass this message to my counterparts in jap japan. >> the japanese tell us that the situation is not very difficult, but the other media is quite unsure about the situation is dangerous. >> meantime, what may be the real story in japan, the real and current human misery from that immense earthquake and the resulted tsunami. the situation gets worse by the day. 500,000 evacuees seeking shelter and wondering where they will go next. >> they've been to two evacuation centers, had to leave the prefecture and they're very worried about what will happen next. >> he doesn't know when he will be able to go home, maybe years later or tens of years later. and he said he cannot even visit the graveyards of his ancestors. >> again, in addition to those without homes, there are millions more without access to food, water or electricity. for more on the u.s. response -- and by the way, it is winter, you saw the pictures -- i want to go to nbc's mike viqueira at the white house. what information do we have away from the nuke, mike, and on the actual disaster? >> reporter: well, the

. take a look. the water took everything, this nurse told us, all the patients. she got as many patients as high as she could asç fast as she could. it was a good thing she was on the upper floors. this is the third floor of that hospital. it looks like what's left of one of the patient wards, nobody in here would have stood a chance. the wave broke high. on one floor after another, the sea poured in, through windows down corridors into patients' rooms. terrifying can't begin to describe it. in addition to that, dylan, we unfortunately found a lot of other patients who were still in their beds, still in their rooms scattered about the different floors of the hospital who hadn't been found yet. then comes the question of rebuilding, if you rebuild. these are towns that are completely devastated. there's not even the infrastructure to begin putting them back together again. so whether or not people will return, some people say a lot of these coastal villages that have been hit so hard may never come back at all. dylan? >> all right, lee, thank you for your reporting. lee cowen w

these rebels are? i think when people hear us saying they view it this way? do they know who they are? what's the right way for americans who are confused about this to make sense of it? >> reporter: the rebels are relatively united at this stage. the political leadership is somewhat complicated. but on the ground, there's a lot of solidarity, there's a spirit of unity, they want to drive to tripoli and remove gadhafi. that is a singular goal. and it is a goal that is uniting people from all walks of life. there are unemployed people, many professionals. we spoke to a man today, he spoke fluent english. he was from what it sounded like a fairly successful building contractor here in benghazi. and he sent his family, his wife, back to the uk. he was married to a british woman, and he picked up a gun and has now joined the rebel cause. so you have many people, most of them volunteers with a variety of different educational and backgrounds united in this goal. >> thank you very much for joining us on the ground from benghazi. be safe and stay with msnbc, you'll be hearing more from r

number is already well above $4 a gallon. it's why it's time for all of us to gather up and find a way out of the stranglehold mideast oil and ultimately foreign imports have on our country's energy policy. the good news, the alternatives already exist, both above the ground and beneath the earth right on our own continent. the bad news, we're not harvesting either possibilities to their full potential. the jobs that would be created, the money we would recapture, half of our trade deficit, ignored. however, the momentum is building to finally tackle the trillion dollar energy problem once and for all. and our first guest today is one of the catalysts behind that momentum on the campus of osu, a man the president mentioned by name in his big energy speech yesterday. a man who made his money in oil but thinks we need to get off of it. t. boone pickens. he's a huge proponent of our natural resources and wind power, of upgrading our power grid, of dealing with misaligned incentives that pays people to do the wrong thing rather than the right thing whether it's in your household or running
